Optimus Prime: Why is my head cartoon-ishly blocky?
Ninja Scourge! The reason why I say that is because the head reminds me of Scourge for some reason

Actually, he's life size and then some. A meter is 3.28 feet. 10 meters puts him at 32.8 feet tall. The animation model, according to the game guide from the first movie, is 28-30 feet tall. So, yeah, this statue is actually life sized and then some.
And he looks incredible. I'm just so impressed by this guy, and I can't imagine what kind of work went into his construction. Whoever the people are, they are to be commended for such incredible talent.
My only crit, is that his antennae are a tad too long and more G1-ish, but that's so unimportant when he's that awesome.
